** Air by William Bryant Logan


Air: The Restless Shaper of the World is a book-length cabinet of curiosities. There are plants (whose spores and pollen travel in the air), furniture (which, when cheap and new, emits fumes), poetry (about fog), planes (and their usually right automatic pilots), and of course weather balloons and weather forecasters. You are guaranteed to learn something completely unexpected in this book!
